Ailsa, you once invited me to participate in your Travel theme – and I have, almost every week, for several years. Your theme will be greatly missed, but I hope we will keep You!
My interpretation became a long one…almost every picture will have an explanation as to why they represent Adventure. Not that I think the explanation is needed – but still.
Thank you for all these years of hosting! Life is the greatest Adventure.
A puppy in the house is the start of a great adventure – and one you must be well prepared for
The adventure migh also include competitions…
To travel with them through life and help them grow to …
…become responsible and stable young men and women
To meet other cultures and learn from them…
Traveling is always an adventure – especially to very different countries from your own. Tibetan plateau, 5000m
The Great Wall of China
Lake Taupo, New Zealand. Christmas Eve, 2011
And to the adventure of the adventurous – Tolkien land
The world of architecture is a neverending adventure…be it great cathedrals like Sagrada Familia…
…or sculptures in your own hometown
Rome – skull/bones/mummies
Birds and other animals…
Listening to and seeing a hero in real life is overwhelming
Not to be forgotten – the adventurous meetings with blogging friends!
Travel theme: Love
What is Love?
Well, there are so many ways of showing it…
…and we all want it…
…mmm, and sometimes it is so obviously shining and true!
I guess the one thing in common is – we ALL need it!
Travel theme: Warm
Spot on, Ailsa. Warm is the theme for this week. Up north we are very tired of all the grey: rain, drizzle, slush – and darkness. Now it is dark around 3.30 pm. I hope your theme will get much light and warmth from us all!
Travel theme: Frozen
Frost is a short lived beauty!
Travel theme: Branches
In the header, Madeira, branches from fallen trees.
Winter is coming…
Artificial branches – but still…And lastly, Tibast, the first one to bring flowers in spring.
Travel theme: Names
For Ailsa this week: Bram Stoker in Whitby and The Kingston Flyer in New Zealand – lovely memories both.
Travel theme: Steps
Steps and stairs always speak to you, don’t they. The material is of course important, and the age. As often for me, I love the old ones best. Worn down, used for hundreds or even thousands of years.
Ostia Antica, Italy. A theatre, yes, but you also have to walk the steps to get to your seat. And in the header, old steps leading to a house in the abandoned village Castro in western Spain.
Somehow I see the theater’s steps as going down – while in Castro the steps are leading upwards.
Travel theme: Sugar
Sugar…we eat too much sugar, they say. But looking at it/them feels rather safe! Or…?
In the header ”sugar buns” – as they are called in Sweden.
At Hamleys in London – sugar, sugar, sugar…
